Happy Monday loves! Hope your weekend was great and that you had a nice Mother’s Day. We spent the day recouping from the Derby party on Saturday and hanging as a family. I’m pretty sure Sweet P squealed “Happy Mother’s Day” 17 times yesterday, and each time made my heart melt.
As you know, we hosted our first Kentucky Derby party over the weekend and I am happy to report that it was a BLAST! We were very fortunate to have a perfect spring day here in Atlanta and I was so happy that our friends embraced the event with their hats, southern attire and Mint Julep consumption. Of course, I was busy having fun and barely remembered to take pictures but I did manage to capture a few.
I delegated TV’s and gambling to the Big Sweet, and he came through big time! Adding a little betting to the race definitely added a fun element. And major kudos to our friend for pulling off those plaid pants that were his grandfathers.
As the race was starting, I snapped this shot. All eyes were on the favorite Nyquist!
Here is a shot from the yard looking back at the house.
My amazing small group ladies looking oh-so-southern.
I do declare wearing a hat IS JUST PLAIN FUN.
I really am terrible at taking selfies.
Talk Derby to Me. (and can you believe these two have 4 kids- they looked like celebrities!)
Me and the Big Sweet awaiting our guests. Can he pull off a pink shirt or what? 🙂
It was a fun afternoon and we have already decided we will be making this an annual event. I did remember to run around like a crazy person a few minutes before everyone arrived and snap some pics of the set up so I will be back tomorrow to share those.
